Save the date for 2nd virtual open house
Thank you to everyone who took time to review the first draft of the East Area Plan and provide feedback. City planners are reviewing the more than 1,000 comments provided by community members and making updates to the draft plan. An updated draft will be available soon, and the next opportunity to share your voice and ask questions is coming next month, so mark your calendars for September 10. For language interpretation

6-7:30 p.m., Thursday, September 10
Virtual meeting via Zoom

The event will offer participants an overview of the feedback received and the updates to the draft plan, as well as another opportunity to ask questions and submit comments. Stay tuned for instructions on how to join the meeting, which will be sent closer to the date.
Visit the plan website at for additional information, and links to updated draft plan when available.

About the East Area Plan
The East Planning Area neighborhoods—South Park Hill, Montclair, Hale, and East Colfax—contain many great community assets, including historic parkways, the Rose Medical Center, Johnson and Wales University, and many unique, locally-owned businesses. The area is experiencing some significant changes, such as the 9th and Colorado mixed use project, as well as plans to add Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Colfax Avenue. Two of the four neighborhoods, South Park Hill and East Colfax, have out of date plans, while Hale and Montclair have no plans at all.

The Neighborhood Planning Initiative provides a great opportunity to establish the community’s vision for maintaining and enhancing the quality of life in these neighborhoods for decades to come.
